I am guessing that you did not immediately discover darling Fido had peed on the couch. I’m not picking on you, why should you expect your pet to use the couch when the floor is ever so much more convenient? If this is the case, urine probably soaked further into the couch than just blotting would fix. I would use the upholstery attachment of a to apply and remove a solution of 50 /50 water and white vinegar. Yes, until the couch has thoroughly dried you will smell vinegar, but that odor dissipates quickly. Alternately, you may wish to use an with the upholstery attachment. The goal is to make sure the cleaning solution penetrates as far as the urine.

Nothing worked especially on cat urine
I must say thank you for your article on removing dog urine from a mattress! I just used it for the 4th time tonight and it worked like a charm! Following the instructions is simple, and leaves ABSOLUTELY NO SMELL!
Before finding this article, I had tried many other chemicals and remedies to remove dog pee from our mattress, all with no luck. I even used a carpet cleaning upholstery attachment which did not help at all. I have bookmarked this page and come here whenever my dog decides to pull her "mad at us" stunt.
I have been using this recipe for years now
If it's on a wood, tile, or linoleum floor use your normal cleaner, but be sure to go over the spot several times with a paper towel first. If you use your mop to clean up a pee puddle, it will most likely be just spreading the urine and scent around which also attracts them back to where they smell the urine, to pee again. If your pet keeps coming back to the area to use it as a bathroom you will want to try a product with live enzymes to remove the smell permanently. Be sure to spot check with the product first, as it needs to sit on the area and be allowed to air dry.When your pet messes on carpets, mattresses, or furniture, remove solids and immediately blot up as much of the moisture as you can with newspaper or old towels. I find treading on the absorbent material speeds the process. If you and your pet are in "training" mode, put the soiled paper where you want him/her to potty in the future. Rinse the soiled area (remember the accident may have spread sideways in the carpet padding, so go a bit wide); thoroughly clean with cool water (hot water or steam may set the stain) and blot that all up with more clean towels. A wet-vac or shop-vac is great for getting up the majority of moisture before blotting dry. If you're very quick in getting to it, this may be all you need to do.
